Hi there,

Try this. Take out the disk and put it another. If the other disk is being read, then you have a scratched or cracked DVD. If it's scratched you can try cleaning it (http://www.ehow.com/how_2302469_clean-scratched-cd.html), but if it's cracked, there's nothing you can do.
If the other disk doesn't work, you have a problem with the Wii Lens and it needs to be cleaned. Information on cleaning the lens can be obtained from:

Hope that helps.

What's your problem?the wiw has trouble reading the disk


Your WII is having trouble reading disks? Try using a dvd/cd ROM cleaner disk. Run the cleaning disk in the WII a couple of times and try inserting your game again. If it still does not read the disk, try cleaning the game disk itself with a lint free cloth and alcohol. make sure to dry the disk completely and never wipe in a circle. If this does not solve the issue, try playing the disk in another WII to figure out if the problem is isolated to the disk itself. If the disk plays in another WII, then contact the manufacturer and send the console in for repair.

When disk is installed the Wii Menu comes up but the disk is spinning and does not show the name of the disk in console.


What kind of disk is it? If it's a game then the disk might be damaged, meaning you'd have to get a new one.

It could also mean the disk drive in your Wii is broken. If other game disks work it should be fine, though.

If it's a DVD or a music CD, it's the same story - the disk must be damaged, or it's possible it's a format the Wii can't read, in which case there's nothing you can do.

If it's a disk you burned yourself, your Wii probably refuses to read it. Nintendo has restrictions on what kind of disks the Wii will read to prevent piracy.

I have the same problem i try two diferent disc y nothing happen. same error . i dont think is my wii console.


Hi,

If the Wii is having trouble with a disk, it means there's either a problem with the disk or the Wii. If your Wii can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo. Otherwise you need to investigate your disk.

If you hold the bottom side of the disk to the light you should be able to see if there's a smudge or scratch. If it's a smudge, cleaning the disk will often fix the problem. I like to use the microfiber cloths used to clean eyeglasses or, short of that, a tissue. Just rub the smudged spot. (When using a tissue I generally steam up the spot with my breath first.) If the disk looks good, put it back into the Wii and see what happens.

A scratch is more problematic. If it's a game you just bought, try exchanging it where you bought it. Otherwise you can try polishing out the scratch.

Some older Wii units also have trouble with dual layer discs, which pack more info onto a disk (Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime use dual layer discs). If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. If all fails and still you Wii cant read any disk it only means that the Wii is malfunctioning.

It is obvious that your wii console is now unable to read discs because it had a numerous disc error, check your warranty and replace the wii console.
